Justin Denholm lives in Brunswick, Victoria with his wife, three children and their chickens, where he has many challenging conversations about faith and life. Until recently, he coordinated the Centre for Applied Christian Ethics at Ridley Melbourne Mission and Ministry College, which concentrates on providing resources and support for Christians to engage with ethical issues in all aspects of life. Justin also works as an infectious diseases physician and epidemiologist at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, Australia, where his clinical and research interests are focused on tuberculosis and other communicable diseases. He has written or edited several books, including most recently a Christian guide to having better ethical discussions, Talking About Ethics: Negotiating the Maze (2011)

Why Justin writes …

I love to write! I treat everything I write as part of a conversation, and want to remember that every word I write is also a word that someone else reads. I also write is because it helps me think; I really value the process of exploring ideas and committing them to paper. Christian ethics is about how we live out our faith in Christ, and I’m most encouraged when someone tells me that something I’ve written has encouraged them to apply their faith in a new, practical way.
